A newly revamped website to promote events and businesses in Portarlington was recently launched by Portarlington Community Development Association (PCDA).

PCDA chairperson Margaret Guijt-Lalor said the idea behind the ambitious website is to provide a boost for businesses starting out who mightn’t be able to get their own website up and running. “The PCDA is putting the whole thing together,” she said. She added businesses can then receive their own domain and code, allowing them to set up their website on the page. Businesses can have a page on the website and then a link to their own website.

“The new and improved website is much more interactive with the capacity for every business, club and organisation in our community to claim their space and

use it as a tool to promote and inform us all of their business, and special offers. If you would like to use the site for your business, please go to the website and follow the simple steps to register,” Ms Guijt-Lawlor said.
